App for Your Phone! Wooftrax Fundraiser

The Walk for a Dog program is a dog-powered fundraising tool for animal shelters and rescues.

Support our shelter simply by walking your dog and HSBV dogs!

Walk for a Dog is a smartphone app that allows you to support your local animal shelter simply by walking your dog, which is something we all do anyway!

WoofTrax donates money to the Humane Society of Boulder Valley for every mile you walk. Donations have ranged from 11 cents to 25 cents per mile depending on the number of walkers for an organization. The more people walking the more they can donate!

How does it work? 

  • After you download the free app onto your smartphone, take the phone with you when you are walking a dog (any dog!).
  • You can change the shelter or rescue you are walking for (e.g. Humane Society of Boulder Valley) in the setup tab of the app for iPhone users, or in the settings menu for Android users.
  • Simply press the “Start Walking for …” button and the app will keep track of your walk. When your walk is stopped it is credited to your selected shelter or rescue.

What if I don’t have a dog? Can I still use the app? 

Absolutely! You can walk for dogs at a shelter or rescue by choosing the “Walk for Cassie” option after enrolling in the app for the first time. Or, create your dream dog as a walking companion by going to the setup tab and adding a dog.
